Mother daughter co founders Gina and Anahata Katkin originally started PAPAYA in Los Angeles with just 20 greeting cards. Using Anahata’s collection of personal sketchbooks, art journals, paintings and design alongside Gina’s savvy business acumen and vision, the pair began to share what has become PAPAYA’s signature aesthetic. PAPAYA has remained true to its roots through the years pulling art and inspiration from within, and creating a celebrated library of off-beat muses, icons and botanical illustrations. PAPAYA’s product collections feature Anahata’s current works and are supported by a small team of female designers. PAPAYA is proudly owned and driven by independent female creatives.
